Things come back from where they’ve been, and the old world    burns.  Then life sighs and begins again, as the new world turns.

     Catastrophic comets striking the earth are a common occurrence. Their destructive nature appears only as historical notations and assumptions and the average person believes such an event will not happen in their lifetime. We tend to ignore the facts because, compared to our short life span, comets are few and far between in their appearance. Allan and Delair (Cataclysm – 1997) state that “Over a thousand comets have been recorded since modern records were first begun (199).”

     Immanuel Velikovsky (Worlds in Collision) suggests “two acts of a great drama,” one occurred 34 – 35 centuries ago in the middle of the second millennium before the common era and corresponds with a world-wide strike in 1628 BCE when several million people perished, and possibly the cataclysmic event of the Israelite Exodus period. An asteroid or comet strike occurred in 3123 BCE causing world-wide destruction. This strike is amazingly close to the 3114BCE beginning date of the Mayan calendar and may have triggered mass migration throughout the world, particularly Egyptians traveling westward to the new world, bringing with them astronomical calendar knowledge. Comets will strike the earth again; they come back from where they’ve been.
